On tap. Damn near perfect. Nice piney hop aroma with some tangerine sweetness. Although high abv, can't really notice the alcohol. Very well done

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Brooklyn night at North Bar, Leeds. Small taster, but still enough to rate from. Pours a slightly cloudy orange-gold, with a small head. Aroma is hops, whacking you in the nose. Citrus, mostly, slightly floral and grassy. Malty hints too. Taste is pungent hops, resin, grapefruit, with a malty backbone. Fairly full body. Very respectable, hard to fault technically, but does nothing for me personally - not my thing.

Tastes like a Stone IPA clone, not bad but I think I need to try it again....Lots of citrus hops.

Drank on tap at the Brooklyn Brewery with Tim Dziubek.
Blast is a hazy yellow ale with a developed off-white head. The aroma is full of bitter hops and the flavor has notes of citrus. This beer was more bitter than I was looking for and would have been more enjoyable with food.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was fruity with a nice presence of pineapple and tropical fruits coupled to some caramel and even a bit of spice. The beer arrived cloudy golden with a moussy white tall head which lasted till the end to lace the glass. The flavor was a very nice malty sweetness on the front end with a fruity character and a light bit of spice on the back. Some alcohol was notable in the flavor. Tropical fruits and more pineapple hop characteristics dominated and the bittering kept everything in check. The finish was dry with a nice pepper/spice into the aftertaste. the body was medium-full with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy texture on the palate. Some light alcohol warming was notable. A darn nice beer! Pint at Barley’s in Greenville.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft...amber-golden color, cloudy, with thick white head, massive hoppiness which though delicious sticks with you. It actually rendered the usually tasty Belgian dubbel I drank afterwards virtually tasteless. So my advice is - if you like hops drink this but if you plan to try other beers during a session drink this one last!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Houston Flying Saucer. A clear and light gold-orange color with a small head and some small lacing. The nose is strongly tangy and citrusy with some sweet crystal malt. Flavor is heavy on the crystal malts; rich and a little bit spicy. Soft mandarin orange-like hops are present throughout and especially notable in the finish. A sweet beer, no doubt, but very drinkable.
